Dave Barry's Greatest Hitsby Dave Barry
Synopses & Reviews
WHEN DAVE BARRY IS ON THE LOOSE, NO ONE IS SAFE
What Dave Barry did for the men's movement in his Complete Guide to Guys and for foreign relations when he did Japan he now does for . . .everything in America. The rapacious observer of Tupperware ladies and leisure concept salesmen sounds off on:
Football--Football is more than just a game. It is a potential opportunity to see a liveperson lying on the ground with a bone sticking out of his leg, while the fans, to show their appreciation, perform the wave.
Sailing--There's nothing quite like getting out on theopen sea, where you can forget about the hassles and worries of life on land, and concentrate on the hassles and worries of life on the sea, such as death by squid.
Gambling--Off-Track Betting parlorsare the kinds of places where you never see signs that say, Thank You for Not Smoking. The best you can hope for is, Thank You for Not Spitting Pieces of Your Cigar on MyNeck.
The good news: he's funny as ever. The bad news: the book is only 304 pages.
--Los Angeles Daily News
